Propofol is widely used for sedating critically ill adult patients because of its rapid onset and short recovery times, even after prolonged use. Propofol may be associated with a life-threatening syndrome, propofol-related infusion syndrome (PRIS), which includes cardiac failure, severe metabolic acidosis, renal failure, and rhabodomyolysis.

Here, we report a patient developing a postoperative peritoneal infection by Aspergillus fumigatus. While galactomannan serum levels were negative throughout the time course, galactomannan levels in peritoneal fluids yielded high results. Serological testing of peritoneal fluids for fungal antigens might be a useful and easily applicable tool to support(More)
OBJECTIVE Mountain helicopter rescue operations often confront crews with unique challenges in which even minor errors can result in dangerous situations. Simulation training provides a promising tool to train the management of complex multidisciplinary settings, thus reducing the occurrence of fatal errors and increasing the safety for both the patient and(More)

Mountain rescue operations often confront crews with extreme weather conditions. Extremely cold temperatures make standard treatment sometimes difficult or even impossible. It is well-known that most manual tasks, including those involved in mountain rescue operations, are slowed by extremely cold weather. To lessen and improve the decrement in performance(More)
The CIAO Study is a multicenter observational study currently underway in 66 European medical institutions over the course of a six-month study period (January-June 2012).This preliminary report overviews the findings of the first half of the study, which includes all data from the first three months of the six-month study period.Patients with either(More)
We report on a trauma victim without history of or risk factors for cardiac disease, who suffered coronary artery dissection caused by blunt chest injury (BCI). Myocardial ischaemia was detected by multislice computed tomography (MSCT) promptly after trauma centre admission and managed by immediate revascularisation. Thoracic trauma may cause myocardial(More)
